|Title:||Measurements of Heat and Combustion Products in Reduced-Scale Ventilation-Limited Compartment Fires|
|Published:||July 01, 2007|
|Abstract:||A series of new reduced-scale compartment fire experiments were conducted, which included local measurements of temperature and species composition. The measurements are unique to the compartment fire literature. By design, the experiments provided a comprehensive and quantitative assessment of major and minor carbonaceous gaseous species and soot at two locations in the upper layer of fire in a 2/5 scale International Organization for Standards (ISO)9705 room.|
